Current State Town Hall: Leading During a Global Pandemic: Lessons That Will Shape Our Future

COVID-19 has triggered a wave of unprecedented demand as seniors became suddenly homebound and congregate centers shifted to delivery and pick-up options. As a result, senior nutrition programs are serving more meals, to more people, with rapidly reworked operations and processes to continue to safely provide the services needed to support the health and well-being of our nation’s seniors. Simultaneously, other changes are impacting the field of aging: the Older Americans Act Reauthorization Act of 2020 was signed into law; the continuing shifting of the healthcare landscape; and a population of seniors that’s more diverse than ever before.

Join the Administration for Community Living Administrator and Assistant Secretary for Aging Lance Robertson for remarks and a fireside chat-style discussion moderated by Meals on Wheels America President and CEO Ellie Hollander that will explore topics and questions that are top of mind for senior nutrition professionals, including funding, regulations, innovation, future, partnerships and alliances and more.
